Persian Gulf cruise
shore excursions

Interesting experiences

Persian Gulf cruise shore excursions are different from conventional ones like those in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. For example, you will:

Walk through streets where many still wear traditional garments, not Euro-American clothing.

See magnificent houses of worship, but they will be mosques, not cathedrals.

Drive up and down steep desert sand dunes.

Take a 4x4 vehicle into the spectacularly arid, rugged, desolate, mountainous hinterland.

Seldom see rain (over 95% of the days are sunny).
